Purpose: The primary goal of this project is to serve as a training and resource center to support families whom have a member with an Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), and service providers delivering interventions to persons with ASD. The training mission is to increase the number of qualified service providers to support home and community-based services, who can then facilitate program development, implementation, and coordination of interventions across multiple environments including home, community, and school settings. Using evidence-based practices, the program teaches providers and parents how to improve children's communication, social interactions and everyday skills needed to function at school or at home, such as following directions or transitioning from one activity to another. Ten training modules include the following content: (1) job responsibilities and characteristics of autism, (2) behavior analysis and data, (3) principles of behavior, (4) teaching strategies, (5) conducting teaching sessions, (6) variables that affect behavior, (7) behavior reduction strategies, (8) determining the function of behavior, (9) including peers and (10) team meetings and wrap-around services.
